Always great here. Just wish they’d bring back the cheeseburger hash!

Took the kids to Home Sweet Home for lunch and they loved it! Already asking to go back. Staff were really friendly and great experience all round.

Very poor portion of the food, not really worth the price. Customer service can be significantly improved. Moreover, two different menus for outside and inside are ridiculous. I won’t be back.

The veggie breakfast was huuuuuge and so nice, one of the best veggie breakfasts I have had :)

I love home sweet home and I'm hoping Sunday was just a blip - but service was incredibly slow (despite the fact that I had booked a table), and when food did come the taste was ruined slightly by the luke warm temperature of the food. One of my friends also was very sick after the pancakes.

I have had many much more pleasant experiences at home sweet home so like I said, I hope my last visit was just a blip.

Staff take plates whilst other members of the group are eating. Food is below standard, dried waffles and over fried chicken. Eggs are buttery and over flavoured. The prices are sky high for frozen reheated food.

I used to love Home Sweet Home it was one of my favourite restaurants- now since the menu change I think it’s all gone a bit down hill. Menu is a lot smaller and our burgers where quite bland. Service was top notch but food itself was just a let down!

Food was great - good quality and portion size. Not cheap, but happy to pay for quality.
Service was efficient - seated promptly, asked for drinks quickly and delivered within a reasonable time. Same with the food ordering.
Nice atmosphere, busy (it was Father's Day) but didn't feel rushed.
Would have been nice to receive a "Goodbye" or "Thanks for our custom" when leaving but that was the only flaw in an excellent brunch.

Great brunch after completing the half marathon with a free pint! Server wasn’t too sure on menu items which was a bit of a negative but he went and checked anything quickly enough. Had the chicken and waffles which were great!

It was really good but our food took ages to come and there was a mix up with my sons food as they realised they weren’t doing that dish. When it finally came mine was cold and my eggs were hard I’m guessing mine was left waiting while they made my sons because of the mix up

• HAIR IN FOOD
• POTATOES UNDERCOOKED
• STEAK UN-CHEWABLE

USUALLY A REALLY NICE PLACE TO GET A BREAKFAST BUT UNFORTUNATELY ON THIS OCCASION I COULD'NT EVEN EAT MINE. SERVICE WAS A LOT SLOWER THAN USUAL DESPITE IT BEING QUIET.

Vegan meal was overpriced for the ingredients that were in it and the amount of food you got. Flatbread with cauliflower as the main ingredients totting up to £10....would have expected more.

Meat meals didn't have a lot of meat in them, mainly all fries. Was ok but wouldn't eat there again.

Take away cakes are delicious.

The food was good but the service was very slow. We waited nearly half an hour to pay with the plates on our table, just a bit annoying really.

Lovely little spot for brunch in particularly (although they do run an evening menu with a bar licence).

Range of food was perfect, from traditional English breakfasts to edgy unique offerings and also the more lean choices.

We had to wait 15 minutes for our milkshakes which was a shame but the staff informed us of this at the time of ordering anyway.
My only criticism would be that the sourdough toast could’ve been warmer and given it was only a two meal order, had expected better.

Nevertheless, a cracking spot and will be back again. Long live the brunch.

Went to home sweet home on Sunday 31st, mother’s Day at 3pm and I must say, the service was amazing, couldn’t fault it in any way. The waiter who was looking after us was really nice and made sure everything we got was great, I think his name was Ky. He was a really lovely guy, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had when eating out. Would definitely be coming back and I would recommend home sweet home to anyone, Thankyou!

Had one of the best eating out experiences here. The food was great but the best part of the experience was out waiter Ky. He was absolutely amazing, making sure that we felt welcome, had everything we needed and made great conversation! He is definitely one of the best waiters I’ve had in a long time!

From being seated at 6pm, when we had booked for (good start) it was 45 minutes until our starters arrived, then a further hour for our main courses. Whilst it was clear our waiter was doing his best the delay seemed to be elsewhere (the kitchen?). The restaurant was busy, but not full. It was disappointing to have to wait so long for our food, which was really nice when it arrived.

sat down straight away- service a little slow and muddled but it was packed to the rafters, so it was understandable - wrong fries brought with one meal- exchanged immediately, with apology. all food piping hot.

We visited HSH on a Saturday morning for breakfast. On arrival we order two soft drinks and a coffee. Considering there were only a few tables taken we waited 20 minute before asking where the drinks were. It took a fuether 10 minutes for tgem to arrive. We then ordered food and waited another 20 minutes for it to arrive. The staff were very friendly. The place was lovely and the food was nice. The only thing that came quickly to the table was the bill. Overall I would go back but would be chasing drinks and food after 15 minutes to avoid long wait times!!

I went to home sweet home in the Northern Quarter.
I was expecting great food and service. Food is average and menu options are limited. The service was great from some members of staff and very poor from others. The waitress was reading a book every time she could which kept her distracted and made the service very slow.
I will not be coming back to have food as other places offer with similar concepts (american diner) with more food options and better service.
The cake was great though.

Food was great but the service was really bad. We were in the secret room and twice where brought the wrong drinks. When the food arrived it took 15 minutes between the first plate and the last plate so most people had finished before all the food was delivered.

Table of 6. Booked for brunch. Attentive waiter who explained breakfast menu was finishing soon but they could squeeze us in if we wanted. I’ve visited a few times. I recommend steak n eggs. Although pancakes looked gorgeous and my veggie friend enjoyed her full breakfast. All in all a fun place for brunch. Family friendly
